Innovative Thinking Required
The new normal in a post-Covid worldThe decade of the 2020s was meant to deliver a modern, integrated, tech-smart, seamlessly connected and better planet for us all. Now, following the black swan Covid-19 pandemic, it has delivered a major hangover from which we all need a massive wake up call.
In a world of new economics, new politics and shifting balances of power we urgently need to break through typical business thinking and psychologically inherent human behaviors to flatten the current change curve.
Rapid business recovery and refocus is essential. Shaping your mindset, re-creating your story and delivering into a very different future is now essential. This stimulating keynote presentation, personalized for your organization, is exactly the medicine you need right now.
“We hired Michael to serve as master of ceremonies at the Global Restaurant Leadership Conference in Dubai, 2018. Michael is a gifted public speaker – he fits right in, as if he’d been in our industry for a while. He was friendly, engaging, and flexible. And oh, that voice! It a bit of gravitas to our conference.
”Chris Keating, Group President, Restaurant Media & Events, Winsight (USA)
“There is no better MC or Featured Speaker than Michael Jackson. He engages and captivates the audience immediately and is an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only does Michael come prepared to speak with his own, well thought out content, but he also dives into the company he is speaking for. He learns and understands their business and the audience he is talking to. He reinforces corporate philosophies and works them into each presentation. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Michael again. You cannot go wrong with Michael Jackson!”
Howard Spector, Executive Producer, Ashley Events (USA)
Michael and I have worked together on multiple industry conferences in the Foodservice space. I am always impressed by his ability to pivot and adapt to any last-minute content changes as well as his ability to captivate the audience on any subject he presents! He is a welcomed addition to each of our events and I hope he’ll be a mainstay for years to come!
